Posted May 2011 by Steve Sinchak

While the ribbon interface in Office 2010 is a refined version included in Office 2007 it is completely new for many users that upgraded from Office 2003 directly to 2010. For new users the most popular problem is finding where settings and features are located in the redesigned ribbon menu.

Microsoft Office Labs has released the perfect add-on utility for any new Office 2010 user.  Instead of manually searching through the ribbon for what you need, simply type it in.
